Emirates Living: Lakes, Meadows, Springs
(Arabic: تلال الإمارات) is a gated community located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
It is named after Beverly Hills. Emirates Hills is largely home to the expatriate community of Dubai, as it consists of the first freehold properties to be sold in the city.
The project was classified as freehold and open to anyone to purchase. The majority of owners hail from India and Pakistan.
Villas overlooking the golf course sell for up to $52 million.
Although the developer, Emaar Properties, pioneered the idea of freehold property in Dubai, this is Emaar’s only project where land was sold per square foot to individuals to build the house of their choice. Over time, all the plots were sold.
Emirates Living Dubai is the most expensive villa community to buy or rent a property in Dubai, buyers pay up to Dh2,604 per square foot, while renting costs Dh80 per sq ft.Some of the residents included the late Benazir Bhutto (although her family still lives there),the managing director of Géant Middle East, Mohammed Ayub Shaikh, Abdul Rahiman Abdul Azeez, owner of Alpha Smart Security Systems Business, and the owners of the Middle East Broadcasting Center and Habib Bank.
Emirates Hills properties look out over the fairways of the Address Montgomerie, an 18-hole golf course created by architect Desmond Muirhead and golfer Colin Montgomerie. It is close to Dubai British School, Dubai International Academy, Emirates International School, Meadows and Emirates Hill Nursery, and Raffles Nursery.
